COLLEGE PRESIDENT'S 
WELCOME 

College life may mean many en- 
riching experiences — experiences of 
study, friendship, recreation, touch 
with large events and strong per- 
sonalities, culture, loyalty to Alma 
Mater and her ideals, religion. 

That every Maryville College 
student may have the will and find 
the way to enter these experiences 
is the writer's sincere wish at the 
beginning of the one hundred and 
eighteenth year of our College life. 
Every indication is that it will be 
a high year on the campus. 

Warmest greetings! 

Ralph Waldo Lloyd, 
President of Maryville College. 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



EDITORIAI. PREFACE 



The editorial staff takes this opportunity 
to welcome you to Maryville College. We 
are glad that you have chosen our College 
as yours, and we are especially happy that 
we may have this small part in helping you 
to become acquainted with our campus. 
This book is presented to you by the Mary- 
ville College Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. 
in the hope that you may find it of value 
as you become true and loyal Maryvillians. 

We sincerely hope that in the following 
pages you may find answers to those ques- 
tions which may naturally confront you as 
you look forward to life on the "Hill". 
This book is inadequate as a real, complete 
introduction to Maryville, but we are sure 
that as you enter into our activities here 
you will come to know the Maryville that 
we know and love. We cherish for you the 
great happiness that has been ours in the 
years that we have spent at Maryville. 

Read this book carefully; follow its sug- 
gestions; and resolve to honor and to re- 
spect the traditions and ideals of the Col- 
lege that it represents. May the best of 
success and the greatest happiness be yours 
as you become a loyal "Scottie". 

THE EDITORIAL STAFF.

PART I 



GENERAL INTRODUCTION 
TO MARYVILLE 



10 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



GENERAL, INTRODUCTION TO 
MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



"When one has really come to know Mary- 
ville by experience any words that might 
be used in describing it seem vain and in- 
adequate. There is something about Mary- 
ville that captivates the affection of even 
the most self-complacent students. One can- 
not stay at Maryville long without feeling 
himself affected by that certain something 
that some have chosen to call the "Mary- 
ville Spirit." What it is we do not know. 
We merely know that it exists. So, as we 
present the general facts about Maryville, 
we do not claim to introduce you to the 
real Maryville. You must experience that 
for yourself. 

Maryville College was founded in 1819 by 
Isaac Anderson to supply the need for an 
educated ministry for the Southwest. The 
school continued with a slow, steady growth 
until the Civil War, which closed the Col- 
lege for five years. In 1866 the institution 
was reopened with a very small enrollment 
which, however, grew very rapidly. The en- 
rollment in 1900 was about 400, of whom 
only 80 were of college rank. Last year 
889 students, all of them of college rank, 
were enrolled. 

Through the years the function of the 
College has changed to suit the varying 
needs of the people it served. About ten 
years ago the preparatory department was 
discontinued and the College became what 
it is now. a liberal arts college providing 
a cultural background. Maryville is on the 



"M" HANDBOOK 11 

approved list of the Association of Ameri- 
can Universities and offers to the student 
who will work an education comparable to 
any to be obtained anywhere in the country. 

The city of Maryville is situated sixteen 
miles soutli of Knoxville. Tennessee, in a 
section of the country rich in historical lore 
and tradition. It has an elevation of 1,000 
feet, and, besides being one of the gateways 
to the Great Smoky Mountains National 
Park, is quite near the recently completed 
Norris Dam project of the Tennessee Valley 
Authority. The population of Maryville is 
5,000, with another 5.000 living in Alcoa, a 
twin community named for the Aluminum 
Company of America, which operates its 
largest factory there. 

The territory surrounding Maryville offers 
much in the way of beautiful scenery. From 
the campus can be seen the heights of the 
Great Smokies, the Chilhowees, and the 
Cumberlands, green in spring and often 
white with snow in winter. You will have 
opportunity to visit the mountains many 
times. Various campus organizations spon- 
sor overnight hikes to these places of in- 
terest. Plan to take advantage of these 
opportunities. 

As for the campus we would venture to 
say that there are few more beautiful in 
the country. A definite program of campus 
beautification has been in progress during 
the past three years. Hundreds of small 
trees and shrubs have been added to the 
campus; a new circular drive is soon to be 
completed; and numerous other improve- 
ments are being made. Included in the 
campus is an extensive College woods of 



12 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 

pine and fir. Here, very near the College 
botanical gardens, is a huge, natural amphi- 
theatre in which the beautiful and impres- 
sive May Day pageant is given each year. 
Included also on the campus is a nine-hole 
golf course. 

There are twenty buildings on the campus, 
the principal ones being described in the 
school catalogue. You will find no diffi- 
culty in becoming located, however, for 
within a few days after your arrival you 
will know them as well as the upper-class- 
men do. 

As from the very beginning of the College 
Maryville aims to lay positive emphasis on 
religion and morals. Students are required 
to attend Sunday school and church. At- 
tendance at daily chapel services is also re- 
quired. The College is organically related 
to the Presbyterian Church, U. S. A., but 
it is not sectarian in purpose or program, 
and students attend the church of their own 
choice. The leading denominations have 
churches in Maryville. More will be added 
about the churches on a later page. 

There are no social fraternities at Mary- 
ville and no dancing, as it is not felt that 
they are necessary or in harmony with the 
general aims and purposes of the school. 
However, there will be plenty of social ac- 
tivity, sponsored by the two "Y's", the 
Student Council, and various other organiza- 
tions and clubs. There are four societies, 
two for men and two for women, each of 
which presents a short, entertaining pro- 
gram every Saturday night. 

To give an indication of the activities on 
the "Hill" we will list some of the clubs. 



'M" HANDBOOK 



The vocational clubs, mainly for study and 
fellowship along particular lines, are: Stu- 
dent Volunteers, Ministerial Association, 
Pre-Medical Club, Law Club, Chemistry- 
Physics Club, and the Language Clubs. Be- 
sides these clubs there are the various state 
clubs composed of students from the same 
section of the country, a Shakespeare Club, 
and honor societies for athletics, debate, 
dramatics, and scholarship. More detailed 
descriptions of some of theSe clubs will be 
given later. There are also other clubs not 
mentioned which will welcome you to their 
membership as you qualify and feel inclined 
to join. Club membership is not essential 
but it always proves helpful and worthwhile. 
However, don't just be a "joiner." When 
you join a club support your club. 

One of the advantages that everyone who 
comes to Maryville enjoys is the wide con- 
tact that is possible within the limits of 
the campus. Students come from thirty-six 
states as widely separated as Massachu- 
setts, Florida, and California. Last year 
two foreign countries were represented, 
chiefly by members of missionaries' families. 
The enlarged vision, the more sympathetic 
understanding, and the new interests gained 
by these contacts are among the many 
values found at Maryville. 

A general introduction to Maryville Col- 
lege would not be complete without a word 
about sports records and the athletic de- 
partment. Maryville, last year, won the 
state wrestling championship for the fifth 
consecutive year. The "Scotties" also copped 
the Smoky Mountain Conference titles in 
basketball, and track. When you come to 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



Maryville be a loyal supporter of the Orange 
and Garnet. The teams will appreciate 
your encouragement. Football starts the 
athletic program off at the opening of 
school in September, and athletic activity 
continues throughout the year. 

When you arrive in Knoxville, either in 
the bus or in the train station, look for 
someone with a Maryville tag. They will 
be glad to direct you over to Maryville. 
Then when you arrive on the campus, go 
to one of the information desks or tables 
staffed by members of the Y. W. and Y. 
M. C. A. Make yourself known to them 
and they will direct you to your dormitory. 
There, other students will help you with 
your baggage and assist you in finding your 
room. There will probably be some con- 
fusion, but it won't take you long to get 
your bearings. 

New students are continually surprised 
and impressed in finding such a friendly 
spirit in evidence at Maryville. As a gen- 
eral thing new students expect to be the 
under-dogs, but this is not the case at 
Maryville. There is no hazing or mistreat- 
ing of the new students. You will find the 
upper-classmen ready and willing to help 
you in every possible way. Ask them ques- 
tions, borrow from them until your trunk 
arrives — they won't mind. It's the Mary- 
ville spirit. The new girls will be especial- 
ly taken care of by their "big sisters", 
arranged for by the Y. W. C. A. As for 
new fellows you won't be assigned a "big 
brother," but you will be "big-brothered". 

Now that we have given you this general 
introduction we urge you to come to Mary- 
ville prepared to make friends and to spend 
the happiest four years that you have ever 
experienced.

Y. M. C. A. 

and 
Y. W. C. A. 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



Y. M. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WELCOME 



DEAR FELLOWS: 

Greetings from the "Y". The officers and 
the cabinet unite with the members to say, 
"We're glad that you are going to be with 
us at Maryville." The first few weeks will 
probably give rise to some new and be- 
wildering problems. The "Y" hopes to be 
of real assistance to you during this period 
of adjustment. Look for a "Y" man. He 
wants to be your friend. 

The emblem of the Y. M. C. A. is a tri- 
angle within a circle. The points of the 
triangle stand for the physical, mental, and 
social phases of life. The circle stands for 
the realm of the spiritual. The aim of the 
"Y" is to interpret the physical, mental, 
and social issues of life in the realm of the 
spiritual. 

We seek to solve the vital problems of 
life in the light of the life of Jesus. Keep- 
ing always in the fore our motto: "Con- 
querors through Christ," we will endeavor 
to express life on its highest plane. 

Let me assure you of my personal in- 
terest in each one of you. Come over to 
Bartlett Hall, the "Y" building, and let's 
talk things over. 

Remember, the "Y" needs you, and we 
believe that you need the "Y". 

Sincerely in Christ, 

RICHARD L. SCHLAFER, 

President Y. M. C. A. 



•M" HANDBOOK 17 



Y. W. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WELCOME 



DEAR NEW GIRLS: 

Y. W. welcomes you! We are glad Mary- 
ville is the college of your choice and we 
know that you will learn to love it as 
we do. 

Do not feel that you are coming to a 
strange place, for, as soon as you reach 
the campus, a Y. W. girl will be there to 
help you, to answer your many questions, 
and to welcome you to many true friends. 

As for Y. W. itself, we want you everyone. 
We hope you will take part in its activities 
for the pleasure, comradeship, and inspira- 
tion to be gained. Your lives and ours will 
be enriched through the deep friendships 
we will share. 

So, again we welcome you and are eagerly 
looking forward to seeing you. 
Sincerely yours, 

LOIS BROWN. 
President Y. W. C. A.

20 MARYVILLB COLLEGE 



Y. M. C. A. ACTIVITY 



The motto of the Y, M. C. A., "Conquerors 
through Christ," is indicative of tlie fact 
tliat tlie "Y" is a group of wide-awake, pro- 
gressive, and earnest young men. It seeks 
to serve the men of the "Hill" in every 
phase of life. The cabinet is composed of 
representative and sincere men of the col- 
lege who want to help you in every way 
possible. 

The "Y" sponsors interclass athletics in 
football, basketball, track, and swimming. 
Tournaments are also conducted in hand- 
ball, boxing, and wrestling. 

The semi-annual mountain hikes and 
banquets are naturally among the most 
popular features of the "Y" program. 

In Bartlett Hall — the "Y" headquarters^ 
will be found the reading and game rooms. 
Here there is a good radio, current maga- 
zines, and newspapers. Games including 
pool, ping-pong, checkers, chess, and domi- 
noes are here for your entertainment. 

The Sunday afternoon meetings in Bart- 
lett Hall are the times when we try to 
reach decisions on the vital issues of life. 
These meetings are brief, interesting, in- 
structive, and inspiring. They are featured 
by special music, prominent guest speakers, 
and student discussions. They are the hub 
of the "Y" program. 

We believe that the "Y" presents a won- 
derful opportunity for the development of 
the three-fold life. 

Join the "Y" ! Take an active part in all 
of our activity! Unite with us and be a 
"Conqueror through Christ" — not toward a 
religious asceticism, but toward a vital 
red-blooded Christianity. 



"M" HANDBOOK 



Y. W. C. A. ACTIVITY 



Maryville's Y. W. C. A, has, for forty-eight 
years, purposed to help girls find satisfaction 
and peace in Christian living. Contributions 
directly to this aim are the Sunday after- 
noon worship services, Nu Gamma Sigma 
groups, Big Sister movements, and partici- 
pation in the East Tennessee Interracial 
Commission. 

The program of Y. W. C. A. also includes 
expressive activities such as semi-annual 
tennis tournaments, production of the May 
Day Pageant, and a part in bringing Lyceum 
artists to the campus. For those interested 
in social work there are opportunities to 
help in the mission chapels and in the or- 
phanage. 

The organization maintains contacts with 
wider groups by sending delegates to the 
State Student Conference and the Blue 
Ridge Conference for Southern Colleges and 
Universities. It is also affiliated with the 
World Student Christian Association. 



22 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



JOINT ACTIVITIES 



Joint Devotional Meetings 

Usually the devotional meetings of the 
Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. on Sunday 
afternoons are held separately, but at vari- 
ous times joint meetings are held, in the 
conduct of which both organizations co- 
operate. The programs of these joint meet- 
ings are of a special character, and are very 
worthwhile. 

Fred Hope Drives 

This drive is not carried on by the "Y's", 
but is carried on by all the students of the 
school and we thought best to bring this 
to your attention. Fred Hope was a student 
at Maryville some years ago, but now he is 
in Africa, and each year a volunteer offer- 
ing is taken up by the school for Fred Hope 
and his work. 

Blue Bidgre Conferences 

Each spring, following commencement, a 
conference of Southern college Y. M. C. A.'s 
and Y. W. C. A.'s is held at Blue Ridge, 
North Carolina. The two organizations on 
College Hill regularly send delegates to these 
conferences. 

The Artist Series 

The Artist Series, sponsored jointly by the 
Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A., consists of 
about four numbers each year, including 
musical, literary, or other cultural enter- 
tainment. You will want to attend these 
programs, for you pay for them in with your 
student activities fund, and they are of 
great interest here at Maryville. 

Circuses 

Once a year the alumni gymnasium is the 
scene of a tremendous circus, put on jointly 
by the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. It's 
fun, and we are sure you will want to be

NU GAMMA CHAIRMAN'S WELCOME 



DEAR NU GAMMA GIRLS! 

We don't know how much you have 
thought about us, but we should like you 
to know that we have thought about you. 
In fact, we are very much interested in 
you and it is with pleasure that we are 
anticipating your arrival. 

There will be funny feelings inside you 
when you arrive. There will be much laugh- 
ing, and talking, until bed time; and then 
you will begin to feel that you are far 
away from home. It won't be long, how- 
ever, before you will be in love with Mary- 
ville. You won't be able to help yourself, 
any more than we could help ourselves. 
Maryville captivates all those who come 
within its halls, and we shall do our best 
to make you feel at home. 

Wherever you are, New Girl, we say, 
"Welcome to Maryville." 

Sincerely yours, 

LOUISE ORR, 
Nu Gamma Chairman.

PART III 



GENERAL STUDENT 
ACTIVITY 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



General Student Activity 



On the Maryville College campus there 
are enough organized activities to capture 
the interest and utilize the ability of every 
student. To some of these organizations 
you may belong by merely expressing the 
desire. Some, however, are run on a selec- 
tive membership basis, and in still others, 
such as the honorary fraternities, member- 
ship is a distinction that comparatively few 
attain. 

Student Council 

The Student Council is composed of eight 
seniors, six juniors, four sophomores, and 
four freshmen. This body is not student 
government, but it represents student opin- 
ion and works with the faculty in promoting 
desirable movements. The members are 
elected by their classes as representing stu- 
dent sentiment. From the Council two com,- 
mittees are chosen, the Student-Faculty 
Committee and the Highland Echo Commit- 
tee. 



NATIONAL HONORARY FRATERNITIES 



Pi Kappa Delta 

Maryville has the distinction of having the 
Tennessee Alpha Chapter of the national 
honorary fraternity Pi Kappa Delta. In the 
spring of 1936, representatives went to the 
National Convention at Houston, Texas. In 
the competition there they achieved high 
distinction. 



"M" HANDBOOK 



Theta Alpha Phi 

Talented dramatic students may, upon 
meeting certain requirements for member- 
ship, be initiated into the Tennessee Delta 
Chapter of the national honorary dramatic 
fraternity Theta Alpha Phi, located at 
Maryville. 

Sigmia Alpha Psi 

The Maryville chapter of Sigma Alpha Psi 
was established in 1930. Membership is open 
to all men of the college "who maintain sat- 
isfactory scholarship and command the re- 
spect of their associates as athletes and 
gentlemen." Membership Is earned by meet- 
ing the requirements of the various athletic 
tests in the presence of a responsible com- 
mittee. The object of the society is the en- 
couragement of the moral, physical, and 
mental development and training among col- 
lege students. 

Local Honorary Fraternity 

Alpha Gamma Sigma was organized in the 
spring of 1934, for the purpose of motivat- 
ing high scholarship among students. Its 
requirements are equal to those of Phi Beta 
Kappa. Ten per cent of the graduating 
class may be admitted provided the mem- 
bers have a grade point ratio of 6.5, or 
somewhat more than a "B" average. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES 



There are on the Hill two sets of literary 
societies. Each set consists of a society for 
boys and one for girls that are known as 
brother and sister societies. Theta Epsilon 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



and Bainonian are the sister societies, re- 
spectively, of Alpha Sigma and Athenian. 

All four societies hold regular meetings 
every Saturday night. Each has its respec- 
tive hall. The meetings held here consist 
of short business meetings followed by pro- 
grams of varied sorts in which members of 
the society are expected to take part when 
called upon, in advance, by the program sec- 
retaries. Once a semester each set of so- 
cieties holds a joint meeting in which boys 
and girls co-operate on matters of program, 
decorations, and refreshments. 

At the beginning of the year the women's 
societies sponsor rush weeks to introduce 
new girls to the members of each society. 
At the end of the two weeks taken by the 
rush program new girls are given the op- 
portunity to join either of the societies. 
Both groups are glad to receive new mem- 
bers, and there is a friendly rivalry as to 
which one can attract the larger number. 

Men make their choices as to society 
membership by visiting regular meetings of 
each. 

There is another form of rivalry among 
the societies besides that of membership. 
Each society presents a play during the 
winter known as its mid-winter. A com- 
mittee of judges gives a decision as to the 
relative merits of the plays, and the so- 
ciety presenting the best play is awarded a 
silver cup. The society receiving the cup 
three years in succession is the permanent 
owner of it. Last year Theta Epsilon re- 
ceived the cup. 

We sincerely hope that each new student 
will find a place truly his in one of the 
organizations. Choose the one in which you 
feel you will be happiest after you have 
carefully considered each. Each society 
sends a hearty greeting to every new stu- 
dent. 



•M" HANDBOOK 



MUSICAI. ORGANIZATIONS 



The five musical organizations on the 
campus provide an opportunity to develop 
musical talent. Three of the organizations 
are choral and two instrumental. 

The three choral organizations are the 
vesper choir, the Maryville Glee Singers, and 
the Women's Glee Club. The Vesper Choir 
is composed of nearly fifty mixed voices 
chosen through try-outs by the choir direc- 
tor. In robes and surplices it serves at the 
Sunday evening services, and on week days 
without the robos leads the daily chapel 
singing. 

The Maryville Glee Singers is a male 
chorus of twenty-five voices. This chorus 
gives at least one concert every year. The 
Women's Glee club is a similar organization 
for women, and has for the past two years 
presented a light opera in cooperation with 
the men's group. 

The combined choral organizations went 
to Cincinnati, Ohio, on May 21-24, 1935, and 
sang at the Presbyterian General Assembly. 

The two instrumental organizations are 
the band and orchestra. The orchestra has 
a concert every year and plays at many 
other functions. The band is most active 
during the football season, and lends color 
and entertainment to the games. 

RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS 



Besides Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. there 
are three other outstanding religious activi- 
ties. The Ministerial Association and Stu^ 
dent Volunteer Band are organizations for 
those interested in the ministry and missions 
respectively. The ministerial group holds; 



30 MARTVILLE COLLEGE 

weekly meetings, but its most important 
activity is that embodied in four standing 
committees whicli conduct regular preach- 
ing and pastoral work in the county prison, 
the county almshouse, the McGhee Street 
Chapel, and the country churches in the 
vicinity of Maryville. 

The Student "Volunteer group is composed 
not only of those who have pledged them- 
selves to the foreign field, but of those who 
are interested in this form of Christian 
work. Regular meetings of the group are 
held Sunday evenings after vespers. Some 
phase of missionary work is considered, and 
frequently missionaries on furlough provide 
valuable and inspiring first hand material. 

Another religious activity is the annual 
series of February meetings. The first series 
was held in 1877, and they have been held 
every year since. The object of the Febru- 
ary meetings is a deepening of the spiritual 
life on the campus and a strengthening of 
the spiritual attitude conducive to greater 
seriousness of thought and action. The 
speaker for the meetings is a prominent re- 
ligious leader of the day, chosen long be- 
forehand with the purpose of the meetings 
as the objective in selection. 

CHURCHES OF MARYVELL.E 



There are in Maryville churches repre- 
senting the leading denominations. They 
welcome the students of the College into 
their fellowship and strive to serve their 
various needs. Lead by consecrated and de- 
voted pastors they are an important factor 
in the lives of Maryville students. Attend 
the church of your choice, enter into the 
activities offered, and you will gain spirit- 
ually. 



'M" HANDBOOK 



CLUBS 



AVriters' Workshop 

Students who show interest and ability in 
literary work may be elected to the Writers' 
Workshop. The members are elected from 
the faculty and the junior and senior 
classes. Each member writes and reads 
aloud for criticism one paper a semester. 

"M" Club 

The "M" Club membership is restricted to 
those girls who have earned the college 
letter by participation in athletic activity 
and the keeping of health rules. 

Pi Upsilon 

The Hi-Trail Club is a hiking club limited 
to twelve men. Its activities include hikes 
to nearby mountains several times each sem- 
ester. 

Home Economics Club 

Home Ec majors have formed a club as 
the medium for the performance of practical 
projects in their various fields of interest. 

Chemistry-Physics Club ^ 

In this club students interested in the two 
sciences composing its name meet to perform 
experiments in these fields. 

Nature Club 

The Nature Club is for those interested 
in botany, zoology, and related sciences. To 
be admitted you are required to take a test 
on general scientific knowledge. The club 
has carried out two outstanding projects in 
the past two years: (1) the tagging of the 
trees on the campus with their cdminon and 



32 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 

botanical names and (2) the beginning- of a 
botanical garden in the college woods. At 
its weekly meetings students or faculty- 
members give talks on subjects in the field 
of natural science. 

Pre-Medical Club 

This club is composed of those whose ma- 
jor interest lies in the practice of the med- 
ical profession, and aims to create a better 
understanding of the problems and interests 
of this field today. 

'Language Clubs

guages, there is opportunity to gain con- 
fidence in the use of the tongue, to increase 
your knowledge of foreign customs, and to 
have a lot of fun in the French, German, 
and Spanish clubs. 

State Clubs 

Wherever you come from there is almost 
sure to be someone else from there too. with 
whom you can form an organization named 
after your part of the country. There is a 
club for nearly every state represented by 
the student body. The purpose of the clubs 
is purely social. 

Publications 

There are two student publications, the 
weekly "Highland Echo" and the annual 
"Chilhowean." The "Highland Echo" is a 
newspaper, reporting campus news. Twelve 
freshman apprentices are chosen by exam- 
ination of samples of their writing called for 
by their English teachers.

PART IV 



ATHLETICS 



36 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



MARYVIL-LE ATHLETIC POLICY 



Maryvllle stands for the well-rounded, 
well developed life. For many years the 
College has realized the necessity for physi- 
cal development along with the develop- 
ment of the mind and spirit. As a result 
Maryville College holds no mean place 
among the schools of the South in regard 
to her athletic activities. Her teams rank 
high in the sports world of institutions of 
similar size. Besides her inter-collegiate 
program there is a well directed and well 
organized intra-mural program which will 
be more fully described later. 

Maryville is the largest institution in what 
is known as the Smoky Mountain Conference. 
This conference is composed of ten colleges 
and universities in East Tennessee and 
Western North Carolina. Few conferences 
in the country have achieved the reputa- 
tion for honest and clean sports activity 
that this conference enjoys. Hardly a year 
passes that does not find Maryville at the 
top of the conference in at least one sport. 
During the past year the Highlanders cap- 
tured three championship titles. The Smoky 
Mountain Conference crown came to Mary- 
ville in basketball and track, and for the 
fifth consecutive year Coach Bob Thrower 
led his grapplers to the state championship. 
In former years conference titles in foot- 
ball and baseball have been taken by 
Maryville frequently. Besides the numerous 
titles won by Maryville athletic teams there 
has come to Maryville through the years a 
splendid reputation for clean and fair play- 
ing. 

Maryville does not buy her athletes. It 
is not deemed wise or proper to commer- 
cialize or to over-emphasize the athletic 
featufe of the College in such a way. 



"M" HANDBOOK 37 

Those who come to Maryville readily enter 
upon the athletic program and render their 
services whole-heartedly in the effort to 
develop themselves physically and to win 
athletic prestige for the College, Places on 
Maryville teams are won by physical and 
scholastic ability. To have the physical 
ability alone is not enough for the Maryville 
athlete. He must be well-rounded in his 
activity. 

The men's athletic program is under the 
direction of Head Coach Lombe S. Honaker 
assisted by Coach Bob Thrower. Their rep- 
utations as coaches are known far and wide 
from the fine calibre of the teams that they 
produce. They are ready and willing to 
develop your possibilities and to give you 
an opportunity to be of those who bring 
athletic glory to the College. 

For several years Maryville has been in- 
cluded on the schedules of much larger 
colleges and universities. Although she sel- 
dom conquers the larger prey she gains ex- 
perience and training that are invaluable. 
And more than that — spectators in such 
contests never fail to be impressed by the 
fighting spirit of the Maryville aggregation. 

As you come to College make up your 
mind to try out for at least one of the 
varsity sports. Perhaps you have never 
realized your possibilities. Athletes are be- 
ing made at Maryville each year. If you 
cannot, for some reason or other, try out 
for varsity sports or for intramural sports 
give your loyal support. After all, the 
Maryville Spirit is what you make it. Be 
a loyal "Scottie" either on the field or in 
the stands. 



38 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



VARSITY SPORTS 



Football 

On some Friday night very soon after 
the opening- of the school year the arc- 
lights of Wilson Field will be snapped on, 
the campus will be all-a-chatter with hurry- 
ing throngs, and the Band will strike up 
the old pep tunes. Then you will know 
that the football season at Maryville is 
officially under way. From the moment 
that the thud of the opening kick-off is 
heard you will experience never-to-be-for- 
gotten thrills whether you be on the field, 
on the bench, or in the stands. 

Football practice gets under way about 
two weeks before the opening of the school 
year and with the coming of new men the 
squad gradually rounds into shape for the 
opening game. About fifty men enter into 
competition each year for varsity positions. 
These eleven positions are all open. If you 
have the stuff one of them may be yours. 
Report as early as possible to Coach Hon- 
aker and Coach Thrower. Strive to make 
the varsity but if you don't make it the 
first year don't be discouraged. The coaches 
are interested in you and will give you 
personal attention even though you remain 
a "scrub". If you are willing to work hard 
your efforts will be rewarded. 

Make up your mind to get out there and 
to show what you have. Play squarely with 
the coaches and with the rest of the squad. 
They will in turn play squarely with you. 

Basketball 

Basketball at Maryville is a very promi- 
nent part of the athletic program. For the 
past two years the Maryville cagesters 



"M" HANDBOOK 39 

have captured tlie conference title, and, as 
a result, greater interest is being shown in 
basketball at Maryville than has been 
shown in many years. 

The sport conies under the capable coach- 
ing of Coach Lonibe S. Honaker. During 
the closing days of the football season the 
call is issued and the Aluinni Gym begins 
to resound with the noise of bounding 
spheres. Preparation is then under way 
for the production of a polished, well bal- 
anced cage machine. A long schedule in 
which various independent and conference 
teams are met brings basketball activity 
well into March before the season comes 
to an end. 

Although Maryville copped the title last 
year with a team that will probably return 
this year there is opportunity for you if 
you can play basketball. There is plenty 
of room for improvement. Let us see you 
out to make that basketball varsity. 

Baseball 

Last year for the second time in fifteen 
years Maryville failed to win the conference 
championship in baseball. This is a record 
that Maryville may well be proud of, but 
the fact that she failed to gain the champ- 
ionship last year reveals that there are 
positions on the team that need to be 
filled. 

Coach Honaker is said by many to be 
one of the best baseball coaches in the 
South. He really knows his baseball. Many 
who have come under his tutelage have 
gone up to the big leagues and have made 
good. Scouts are ever on the watch "for 
what Honaker has at Maryville" for they 
respect his coaching ability. If you can 
play baseball. Coach Honaker wants you. 



40 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 

for he must have sound material for his 
championship teams. 

A long schedule is played, many trips are 
taken, and everybody is amply repaid in 
good times for energy expended. Let's see 
you out on the diamond when the cracks of 
the bats and the thuds of caught balls are 
heard in the spring. 



Track and Field 

Maryville is widely recognized as the 
home of strong track and field teams. Just 
take a look at her -record for last year — 
winner of the Smoky Mountain Conference 
championship, and runner-up in the State 
Meet in competition with such teams as 
the University of Tennessee, Sewanee, etc. 

One of the main reasons for her suprem- 
acy in this field lies in the excellent coach- 
ing by Coach Bob Thrower. Coach Bob's 
record for the shot put, established when 
he was a student in Maryville, has not been 
broken. This record along with the other 
college track records is listed on a later 
page. 

Track practice gets under way about the 
middle of March and holds sway until the 
first week or two in May. The schedule 
calls for six or more meets among which 
is the state track and field meet, and the 
Smoky Mountain Conference Meet. 

There are many departments in which 
you may be able to display skill. Drive at 
some of those college records! 



•M" HANDBOOK 



MINOR VARSITY SPORTS 



Cross-Country 

Cross-country running is gaining impetus 
at Maryville rapidly due to increased inter- 
collegiate competition and increased interest 
in the school championship. Last year's 
record was featured by victories over the 
University of Tennessee and Lincoln Memo- 
rial University. The cross-country run for 
the school championship is scheduled each 
year during one of the home football games 
and always creates great interest. A cup 
is presented to the winner by the Y. M. 
C, A. The race is five miles long and the 
record is 26 minutes and 20 seconds. Let's 
see you out to lower that record this fall. 
Incidentally the holder of the record, Stuart 
Snedeker, set a new record for the 5,000 
meter run in the Junior A. A. U. meet at 
New Orleans last year and won the same 
distance race in the Senior A. A. U. meet. 

Wrestling: 

As has already been stated Maryville for 
the fifth consecutive time copped the state 
wrestling championship last year. Under 
the guidance and training of Coach Bob 
Thrower Maryville grapplers have built up 
an enviable reputation. The team that won 
the state championship last year, however, 
will suffer greatly from the loss of several 
mainstays on the team. These places as 
well as the other positions are open to you 
if you can make the grade. You can fit 
into one of the eight different weight divis- 
ions. Come out, and let's win another 
state championship! 

Tennis and Swimming 

Coach Fischbach handles these two sports 
and does a very fine job of it. He has 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



winning teams, many trips ari> l:il<(>n, and 
you can't help liking to work untUr this 
foach. MaryviUi^ made a v»'ry k*h)(.1 show- 
ing in both tonnls and swimniinK during the 
last season, so, il' you oan wii>ld the racquet 
or paddle the water, let's see you out. 

INTKRCI.ASS SPOUTS 



1-ast year a decided iniproviMuent was 
made in the intra-mural sports program. 
This program is carried on under (he au- 
spices of the V. M. C. A. auii includes 
iiitcrclass competition in eviMytliing from 
< licckcrs tt) football. Each sport counts so 
many points, and the class which gets the 
most points for the entire year gets the cup. 

With the purchase of new material and 
thi> addition of new fields of competition 
intcri'lass sports arc rapidly assuming a 
more prominent place in the athletic pro- 
gram. Herein lies a chance for you who 
do not go out for the varsity. You have 
no fear of varsity competition In these 
sports, for all "letter" men and men on 
the presi>nt squads are ruled out of the 
events, and It is left entirely up to those 
who do not go out for varsity competition. 

Support your class teams by taking part 
in the competition. Not only does the class 
team m>ed your support but also you need 
111." physical tiivelopmcnt and fellowship to 
be gained In these contests. 

I-ETTERS AND MONOOKAIMS

THE WEARING OF MARYVILLE 
LETTERS 



MaryvlUe letters and sweaters are to be 
worn only by those who have won them in 
the various sports. Those winning letters 
will be so designated by the coaches. Any 
violation of this rule is frowned upon by 
students and faculty. Any good Maryville 
student who is loyal to the school would 
never wear a letter unless he or she has 
earned It. 

Any letter or monogram from any other 
school, be it high school or college, can not 
be worn while you are at Maryville. Several 
times this rule has been violated, especially 
by the women students. Maryville has no 
way of enforcing this ruling but by the will 
of the students. We hope your loyalty to 
Maryville will not allow you to break this 
rule. So leave all your high school letters 
at home and come to college with the idea 
of having a Maryville "M" on your sweater 
in the near future. Anyone is proud to 
wear a Maryville "M". 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



WOMEN'S ATHLrETICS 



Point System of Athletic Awards 

Since the intercollegiate • contests have 
been dispensed with, the point system has 
been adopted. Women are given an oppor- 
tunity to participate in every sport, and a 
chance to win the coveted monogram, the 
small letter, or the large letter and sweater. 
By qualifying for basketball, soccer, volley 
ball, indoor baseball, and speed ball teams 
a girl may win 30 points for each team. 
Additional points are awarded for sports- 
manship, membership on a squad, captain 
of a team, and perfect attendance. In 
swimming, track, hiking, and aerial dart 
tournaments, 50 points each may be won. 
High scholarship adds a certain percent to 
the total of points won. The observance of 
health rules may total 25 points for each 
semester. 

Honors are awarded as follows: 300 points, 
Maryville Monogram (MC) ; 400 points. 
Maryville "M"; 500 points, Maryville "M" 
with sweater. 

Tournaments 

The Y. W. C. A. sponsors a fall and 
spring tennis tournament. In 1935-36, be- 
cause of unfavorable weather, only one 
singles tournament was held, however. The 
winner was Martha Evelyn McSpadden. 
The winners of the doubles tournament 
were Dorothy Whittington and Hazel Ed- 
dins.

COLLEGE SONGS 



The Alma Mater 
I. 

Where Chilhowee's lofty mountains 

Pierce tlie southiern blue, 
Proudly stands our Alma Mater, 

Noble, grand, and true. 

II. 

As thy hilltop crowned with cedars. 

Ever green appears; 
So thy memory fresh shall linger 

Through life's smiles and tears. 

IIL 

Lift the chorus, wake the echoes, 

Make the welkin ring! 
Hail the queen of all the highland! 

Loud her praises sing. 

Chorus after each stanza: 

Orange, garnet, float forever. 

Ensign of our hill! 
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater! 

Hail to Maryville. 

Note. — An erect standing position and an 
uncovered head are prerequisite to a re- 
spectful attitude toward the Alma Mater at 
a time when it is being played or sung.

Dear Old Maryville 

I. 

Near Chilhowee's mountain blue, Stands our 
Alma Mater true. 
Dear old Maryville, to thee we lift our 
song. 
'Neath thy cedar grove so fair, We shall 
breathe the mountain air, 
While with merry hearts the chorus we 
prolong. 

II. 

As the morning sunbeam's light Greets thee 
o'er Chilhowee's height. 
So our tribune. We as freely to thee bring. 
Youth's true homage full and free. We thus 
gladly render thee. 
Dear old Maryville, thy praise we freely 
sing. 

III. 
To thee, guardian of our youth. Faithful 
guide to light and truth. 
We, thy children, bring our songs of 
grateful praise. 
And when we shall leave thy hill. We shall 
ne'er forget thee still, 
Dear old Maryville, the scene of happy 
days. 

Chorus after each stanza: 

Sing we a song of our dear college home, 

Fondly we love thee still, 
And wherever we may be. Fond mem'ry 
turns to thee. 

Our Alma Mater, dear old Maryville.

The Old Pep Song 

We've got the rep, rep, rep, of old Maryville! 
We've got the pep, pep, pep, of old College 

Hill! 
We've got the strength to knock 'em stiff 
And never know the diff, 
For we're from Maryville of Tennessee. 



The New Pep Song 

Here we go! Here we go! 
Down the field to crush the foe. 

As the Scotties go marching along. 
Men of might! Men of fight! 
Orange, garnet, waving bright 

While we make the Hill merry with song 
Then it's hi, hi, hi. 
We'll win this game or die. 

Highlanders! Fight to the end. 
Rah! Rah! 
And we won't be done 
Until the victory's won 

For the pride of our hearts — Maryville!

ATHLETIC NOTES 



■M" HANDBOOK 



Maryville College 

MARYVILLE, TENNESSEE 

On© Hmidred and Eighteenth Year 

Begins September 9, 1936 



3Iarj ville College is one of the im- 
portant church-related institutions of 
America, and seeks to be true to the 
noblest traditions of the association 
of education and religion. Its Direc- 
tors are elected by the Synod of Ten- 
nessee of the Presbyterian Church in 
the U. S. A. 

It is a Christian liberal-arts col- 
lege with the purpose of providing a 
general cultural education. It is not 
a professional or pre-professional 
school, although its courses form 
sound foundational preparation for 
professional study. 

Its fees are deliberately kept at a 
low figure for the benefit of those 
who might not be able to attend 
otherwise. This makes earnest co- 
operation on the part of all an es- 
sential factor. 

It desires to select its students on 
the basis of preparation, earnestness, 
capacity, character, and co-opera- 
tiveness.
